Excerpt from The Ordeal of a Diplomat

I do not believe in the wisdom of writing several hundreds of pages of memoirs. Even great men, in my opinion, make a mistake in writing too much. Whatever interest at taches to these pages is due to the fact that unkind fate had placed me in a prominent position during the greatest crisis in history. The reader may accuse me of speaking too often in the first person. It is, however, the inherent feature of all personal recollections. Since the Bolsheviks have published the diplo matic correspondence of Russian representa tives, I do not consider it an indiscretion to reproduce some of these documents. I have also quoted a few letters and telegrams sent to Omsk from the Embassy. They are like wise but temporary secrets, and it is my firm belief that to withhold their publication is to deprive the public of the best means of forming a judgment on the activities of a diplomat.
